Oñondivepa Group's story

This committee was formed thanks to Mrs. Lucia B. de Oviedo, who learned about the program and the foundation thanks to the members of the "Mujeres en Accion" (Women in Action) group, from the same neighborhood, Puerto Pabla, in the city of Lambare.

We can talk about some of the members, in this case of: Mrs. Basilia L. de M., who was widowed 5 years ago and has 4 children, all of whom are already grown and married with children.

Basilia is a woman very involved in the community. She belongs to the prayer legion group María de la Capilla Niño Salvador del Mundo of the Puerto Pabla neighborhood in the city of Lambare. Additionally, she visits the ill in the neighborhood, bringing them words of hope and communion.

She learned in a course how to embroider with thread, crochet style, things such as: baby clothing, stockings, gloves, little shoes, hats for newborns, in addition to women's clothing such as blouses, skirts, dresses, shirts, etc.
